July 31, 2014Should SC Students be Required to Learn Pros and Cons of Evolution?
Most businesses would agree that the topic of education is very important to them. And this is why we discuss it from time to time. Most recently was about a month ago when our regular Monday morning guest, John Warner, who at the time was a member of our state's Education Oversight Committee, mentioned that he voted against the EOC's recommendation to require biology students to construct scientific arguments that both support and discredit evolution. John Warner indicated that some scientists expressed concern to him that this proposal could affect our state's efforts to recruit prominent researchers to our state such as those currently being sought for South Carolina's SmartState endowed chair program. This morning we have the other side of that vote for you.
